    Great place to stay on a budget

    Super cute rooms with that DDR charm! Everything was clean and neat, and comfortable. Thankfully the rooms are updated enough to have comfortable beds and clean new bathroom fixtures with the DDR accents. I chose the private bathroom, and was pleased to have it. Easy check-in & check-out. Vintage radio worked great! Ideal location 2 min walk to the S-bahn

    A bit difficult to maneuver luggage up and down stairs as there is no lift. Would have been nice to have a mini fridge & a fan as the summers are hot! Private bathroom was not en suite, but across the hall. Otherwise no complaint!

    Unique, but...

    DDR feel. Overall clean.

    No toilet in the room, even if you paid for. No or bad WLAN in the room. Didn't liked, that I was asked to pay the bill in advance during the checkin.

    Would be nice if it wasn't for the bed bugs!

    This place had an interesting retro decor, that lives up to the DDR theme that they are going for. The room was pleasant enough for a Hostel. Generally it initially met the expectations of what I was paying for. The location is good. Fairly close to many things, particularly the Ostbahnhof.

    The room smelled like it had been smoked in every day for years, despite the no smoking signs everywhere. I was letting that slide until I found out that my room had bed bugs! I had lots of bites. Upon closer inspection, I found out that the mattress was infested, and I killed a full grown adult as it was crawling around on me. The room had almost all of the things you can look for when hunting for bed bugs infestation. Blood spots from the post-feed, bug parts in the mattress lining, bug dirt in the sheets and mattress crevices. It was all there. I understand that these things happen, even in the nicest hotels, and would not be leaving a scathing review if the situation had been appropriately handled. But in addition to the infested mattress, the staff seemed unconcerned. Which makes me think this is a regular problem, and that there is no protocol for dealing with it. The woman at the desk did not bat an eye at the dead bed bug I showed her. She offered me another room, in a tone that suggested I was being unreasonable. There was no apology, no offer of refund for the two nights I had already been there, no offer to pay for laundry, no offer of plastic bags to quarantine things. They didn't want to come look at the room to see where the bugs were. Those are all bad signs, and I left for another hotel minutes thereafter. I did get refunded for the nights that I would not be staying there, but had already paid for, so at least there is that.
